The NWJHL season is in full swing, and the Fort St. John Huskies are hard at work trying to defend their championship.
Each week, we'll talk to a different Huskies player, about themselves as a player, where they're from, and the current Huskies season.
Hometown: Comox, B.C.
Wieght: 190 lbs
2018 stats: 11GP, 1A
Age and year with Huskies: 17, first year with Huskies.
Favourite NHL team: “Montreal Canadiens. Looking at their roster in the offseason, I thought this would be a rough year, but they’re off to a good start and I hope they can kill it.”
Favourite NHL player and why: “Drew Doughty. He’s a fast defenceman who can skate the puck and still score some goals.”
On his style of play: “I’m more of a home-style defenceman who likes to make the simple plays to the forwards.”
On his first year in junior and joining a new team: “The league has bigger guys and it’s rougher than I’m used to, but I’m adapting to it and hoping to get better every day. The team’s been good, they’re a good group of guys and Todd (Alexander) is a great coach.”
